Netflix, from Thursday




Streaming What’s On

A serviceable if overheated conspiracy drama based on a novel by Matthew Quirk. Peter Sutherland (Gabriel Basso) is a diligent, time-serving FBI agent at the White House. He finds himself monitoring a mysterious emergency phone line that, thankfully, never rings. Until one night it does and he finds himself plunged into a nightmare involving a Russian mole at the highest levels of US government. Before long, the hunt for the double agent has become a matter of life and death, for both Sutherland and (you guessed it) the US itself.
